The People’s Palace has two floors of exhibits (lift access) that provide an over-view into the growth, challenges and triumphs of Glasgow and its people over the last 200+ years. Allow 2 hours to have a really good look around. Free admission.

Within easy walking distance (Glasgow Green is lovely) of the centre this is a must for local history. There is also a lovely coffee room in the hothouse garden.
